Angelina is just one of those places that you have to visit for breakfast if you ever get the chance to visit Paris. World famous for their Le Chocolat chaud l’Africain, or African hot chocolate, our breakfast at Angelina was nothing short of spectacular.

Café de Flore
For a traditional Parisian breakfast in a historically poignant setting, look no further than Café de Flore. I had a simple breakfast of eggs & bacon, which cost no less than 15 Euros, however with such fabulous service from some of the best looking French waiters we’d seen, Café de Flore is worth a visit if only to feast the eyes.

White Café
This was a small, modern café just down the road from the hotel that we stayed in that we ate in a couple of times, mainly for the convenience of the location, it was quick and easy to grab a quick bite to eat. Perfect for when we didn’t fancy eating a huge meal in the middle of the day in the heat; typical food on offer was smoothies, salads and granola with yoghurt. The café itself reminded me of a modernised sushi bar, all white acrylic furniture and glass-topped tables. All white errrrthang.

KONG was a restaurant that we had in our heads from the very beginnings of planning this trip, we imagined ourselves lunching like real sophisticated human beings who have their shit together. Having featured in Sex and the City when Carrie briefly lived in Paris, we (naturally) expected to re-create this aura. Not quite reality, but we loved KONG nonetheless. Located the very top of a gorgeously Parisian building, the restaurant itself it a surprisingly modern, glass-roofed extravaganza to the eye with spectacular views. The staff were literally all supermodels, none of them looked like they had ever had a good feast in their lives, let alone sampled the menu of Asian-fusian food. I had a rather nondescript plate of scrambled eggs and bacon (again), which was nice and filling, but the main attraction was the dessert that we shared – chocolate spring rolls with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. HEART-EYE EMOJI.

Le Coq
For all three of our dinners in Paris we asked the concierge for their recommendations, all three were top notch restaurants at different price points, and all three I would recommend and visit again. The first night we dined at Le Coq, a trendy restaurant close to the hotel, adjacent to the Trocadero. The interior decor of this place was uh-mazing. We didn’t make a reservation so we sat outside, but made the excuse of needing to use the bathroom in order to experience the incredible stairway. Lame? Nope. Food-wise, this was the best grilled chicken and chips I’ve ever had. Like a high-end Nando’s. I’m probably not selling the food in this restaurant well, but trust me, it was SO SO GOOD.

Our second evening meal was at XVIe Avenue, another concierge recommendation, and possibly one of the best pieces of steak I’ve ever eaten. Located a short walk away from our hotel, this small, typically Parisian bistro was quaint and pretty – the perfect contrast to the night before’s trendy, supermodel-wait staff, this place was much more down to earth, but with excitingly delicious food.

For our last meal in Paris we decided to go for something traditionally French. And what is more French than escargot? Victor is a small, intimate French restaurant in the 16th arrondissement and the food was fantastic. We started our dinner off with a shared plate of escargot… Something I never thought I’d even try given what a fussy eater I am, I must’ve had a “when in Paris…” moment and decided to live a little. For anyone wondering, the snails were seriously NOT THAT BAD. It took us a while to muster the courage to actually eat it (and a few more minutes to actually prize the meat (?) out of their shells, but once we finally ate it, it really wasn’t that bad! Similar texture to pasta just a bit chewier, and it’s drenched in garlic so that’s all you can really taste. For my main course I had a steak (again) which was served with crispy polenta and some sort of creamy sauce. Dessert was a slice of brioche with caramel sauce and caramel ice cream. Embracing the food coma.

As somebody who never usually was a full three meals a day, I certainly gorged whilst we were out there and I’m so glad I did, we ate some of the best food I’ve ever eaten and would recommend all of the places we did eat at to  anyone visiting Paris! Bon Appétit!

20131229122827I know Christmas has been and gone, (I still have the muffin top to prove it), and although I was really lucky this past Christmas with the gifts I received, I have to admit I’m being extremely greedy and coveting more. God strike me down, I’ve probably committed 4 of the Seven Deadly Sins since the Christmas period. But this bag though, ohhhhhh this bag. It makes my heart melt. It’s just perfect. It’s £415. But it’s also perfect. I do not have £415 to spend on a handbag so I’ll just sit here and stare at it on a screen instead, whilst eating the Ben & Jerry’s we still have left over from Christmas.


I had such a fab time in Alcudia, Majorca that I thought I’d share my Instagram photos on here! I stayed at the Hotel Maritimo in Playa de Muro which I would highly recommend if you are looking on going for a relaxing break there. The hotel was great, food was amazing and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful or attentive.

Here’s a small collage of photos from my week in Alcudia, 27th June – 4th July. I’ll do another post on the things I bought whilst I was there!

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.”

If there’s one thing I’ve taken from today, it’s that life is too short for any level of regrets. Life’s too short to say “no”. Life’s too short to hold back. Life’s too short to wonder “what if”. Please hug your loved ones today and tell them how much they mean to you.
